Quantifying the Human, Social & Environmental Impact of Good Design

June 25 @ 6:30 pm 7:30 pm

Spaces and places are first and foremost designed for the people who occupy them – yet they have an environmental and societal impact both within a local and global context. Often, the benefits of positive environmental impact – and specifically to the occupants and society at large – are intangible yet significant. In many instances these benefits lead to economic advantages and fulfill the theory of the ‘Triple Bottom Line.’ 

Using their own experience, case studies and research, the panel will highlight the impact of thoughtful design on human experience and society. Panelists will also share thoughts on efforts to quantify and monetise the impact of good, sustainable design. The discussion will cover how the UK government is encouraging inclusion of social value in both public and private projects. We’ll discuss how the private commercial sector is responding to the social asks and incorporating in their projects, and how designers and planner are addressing human well-being and greater social benefits. We will also discuss how social value is being incorporated beyond UK through voluntary certification processes including LEED v.5 and Fitwel in the United States and across the globe.
